In May, I went out for 4 months on worker's comp for work related hand surgery. While I was out, my employer closed up shop and relocated to the east coast. My extended work contract ended in November (long story) and I was subsequently diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer. I've completed radiation and have a great prognosis. No chemo. Along the way, I returned to school, earning a certificate in Social Media Marketing and Management and I have refreshed my copywriting skills.
After reading articles on this site, I'm considering PT work combined with work-from-home rather than return to a FT office position right away. What impact could this have on future employment if I then pursue a FT position? I am in my early fifties, so I fear age is against me.
